Product Description

When a Lost Child warning blasts over the mall's PA system, toy store manager Carly Mason finds the little girl playing with a stuffed rabbit. Something about five-year-old Penny Tremaine is different. An ex-social worker, Carly recognizes that Penny suffers fetal alcohol effects, and a piece of Carly's own past suddenly confronts her. Never again will Carly become involved with a client. The risks are far too great. But something about Penny--and Penny's handsome father--tugs at Carly's heart. Before she has time to think it through, she agrees to a much-needed job as a nanny.

Dr. Ryan Tremaine knows he messed up his life. But this summer he will redeem himself. With his ex-wife remarried and on a trip far away, his two teenage sons and Penny are living under his roof full time. Ryan is dedicated to his sink-or-swim list, a plan to reconnect with his children. The first step: recruiting Carly Mason to be Penny's nanny. Ryan never anticipated being so drawn to Carly, an attraction Carly seems to fight as much as he does. Could Carly be the missing piece that helps his family stay afloat, or will their blossoming romance only complicate things further?

Publisher's Description

Sometimes the most unexpected love can be exactly what a heart needs...

When a Lost Child warning blares over the mall's PA system, Carly Mason finds the little girl playing with a stuffed rabbit. Something about Penny Tremaine is different. An ex-social worker, Carly recognizes that the child suffers fetal alcohol effects, and a piece of Carly's past suddenly confronts her. Never again will she become personally involved with a client. The risks are far too great. But something about Penny--and Penny's handsome father--tugs at Carly's heart.

Dr. Ryan Tremaine is trying to put his life back together. With his ex-wife remarried and on a trip far away, his two teenage sons and Penny are living under his roof full time. Ryan has put his faith in his Sink-or-Swim list, a plan to reconnect with his children. The first step: recruit Carly Mason to be Penny's nanny.

Ryan never anticipated being so drawn to Carly, an attraction Carly seems to fight as much as he does. Could Carly be the missing piece that helps his family stay afloat, or will their blossoming romance only complicate things further?

Known for her realistic and engaging characters, Victoria Bylin delivers an emotion-packed story reminiscent of The Sound of Music, one that reminds us all to believe in the power of faith and love.

    "Together With You" by Victoria Bylin, is a very sweet novel. It is a contemporary romance filled with family and faith. From this book I learned a lot about FASD, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, the disease that the five year old (Penny) main character has.

    Penny just wants her deceased mommy back, and she will do whatever she can to be with her, she doesn't understand that heaven isn't a place she can just go to. With her limited understanding of reality and her heart filled with love for her Mom, Penny desperately wants to return to her old life. The life that didn't involve older brothers, a Dad, a nanny and a new home.

    Dad, Ryan, knows he has messed up big time. But he wants to do right by all three of his children. He writes up a list of things that he wants to do with his kids, different ways to reconnect with them. But it isn't until he hires Carly as a nanny that he begins to learn how to really love, communicate and understand his children.

    This is a wonderful story of love and forgiveness. It emphasizes how we have to forgive ourselves for our past mistakes, move on, and leave the guilt behind. We must learn to live with the choices we have made. Victoria Bylin handles these serious issues with gentleness and humor creating a great novel filled with information about God's grace, family, FASD and meeting the needs of others.

    I received this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

    With a cover like that, how could a romantic-at-heart not be drawn in? I confess, it hooked me. It whispered of a story full of hope and healing from the past. In beautiful subtlety, it hinted at new love and even freedom. And thats just what I found as I read through Together With You. It introduced me to several characters who each in their own way were eager for a fresh start at life and living well. You cant help but admire them.

    Before this book, I was not really familiar with FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder). I learned a lot through young Pennys story and that of her familys. To me, those details created a strong and unique backbone for the rest of the book. Their delicate struggles felt believable and realistic. And so did the past regrets both Ryan and Carly had to face. Their love grows softly, but it feels true.

    The story held my attention throughout and read very smoothly; however, Im still not sure I was the ideal reader for it. There were, at times, too many pieces of the present-day, modern world for my preference. Remember, Im more of a historical fiction fan myself. I definitely recommend it for contemporary readers, though. It has emotional depth and some surprising twists along the way that made it feel unique.

    I especially liked Carlys strength in her convictions and her endearing ways with the children. This book focuses greatly on the importance of family and faith. I may prefer the historical genre, but I still enjoyed Together With You and appreciated the story it had to tell.

    Thank you to Bethany House and the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Together with You is a really well done piece about love and children with autistic disorders. Fetal alcohol effects can have serious repercussions, and I knew absolutely nothing until I read this book.

    Victoria Bylin made me fall in love with a cast of emotionally wounded characters who needed someone to love them unconditionally - and they found it in Christ. I grew to love each of the characters, and to see them mature was so fulfilling.

    Take the cover as an early warning. This isn't some light-hearted quick summer read. It will make you cry (probably multiple times). Have chocolate and tissues on standby. But it is so worth it to power through all the sadness, and the grey feeling that kind of washes over you, and enjoy the wonderful story.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher (Bethany House) in exchange for my review. Enjoy reading! (and don't forget to click on the cover to read an excerpt. Check out more reviews at genuinewithdrawal.blogspot.com

    Together With You deals with a child with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. Penny is the result of an affair Dr. Ryan Tremaine, an agnostic, had which also broke up his marriage. Pennys mother died and Ryan fought for custody of his daughter. Nannies dont stay long until he convinces Carly who is working on a doctorate with a focus on FASD to accept the job. His two sons are spending the summer with him and have a difficult time dealing with Penny and their dad. Carly, a Christian, works to unite the family and get Dr. Tremaine to loosen up.

    The story has several unusual twists. I enjoy reading a book where I cant predict how everything will happen. I also learned a lot about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. Sometimes we cant move forward until we forgive ourselves for the past especially when it is something we couldnt control. This was my first book by Victoria Bylin but I will be looking for more by her!

    I received this book from www.bookfun.org in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Together with You by Victoria Bylin is one of the sweetest Christian romance novels I have read. This book addresses the incredible reality of living with a child with some form of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, a very difficult diagnosis you don't hear much about. It is a book that threads together the beautiful tapestry of sin and redemption, and deals honestly with both.

    The character development is strong, and stereotypes dispelled systematically throughout. With most romance novels, the plot can be seemingly simplistic without much reality. Although there was a bit of that in this novel as well, there were true representations of realistic struggles as well.

    I learned a lot about the mindset of a child with Fetal Alcohol Disorder, as well as the struggle to attach with and parent a child with this challenge. I also observed what happens when well-meaning, but ignorant, relatives try to swoop in and "save the day" only to the detriment of the child and the child's family unit.

    This is a tough read with many redeeming characteristics. I recommend any book that not only entertains, but educates as well. This is such a book. It is a reminder of the frailty AND resilience of the human spirit.
